comments from Ellen:

Reflection of the iconic Chicago Theater sign on a rainy evening in April. Originally the flagship for the Balaban and Katz group of theaters in Chicago. The venue still hosts productions attended by thousands of people every year.

I have a crazy blurry memory of being lost in Chicago one evening. Missing my train with a bunch of work people I had just met. We stayed hours at this hole in the wall Mexican restaurant that we could never find again once we returned our next trips to Chicago. This image so makes me think of that crazy night I can never forget.

I love this. Really defines what this competition is all about. Looking at this, I feel like I'm back on the streets of Chicago. Lovely color, reflection, and framing.

Hi Ellen, welcome to minted! This is a wonderful shot! first it's well composed and vibrant. What I think is most appealing is the narrative. You can go so many different ways with this! Well done!
